Welcome to Monday!
We are still down in Venice. I have a doctors appointment down here today so MacGyver and I decided to stay an extra day and that way he can attend some additional angler management therapy.
The dog’s obviously enjoy it too. They certainly like it more than fireworks. In the past we’ve watched the fireworks in the Venice Inlet from our boat but it get’s a little crazier every year. This was what the inlet looked like on Saturday at 11am.
So we decided rather than dealing with the potential drunk idiots operating their floating vessels we would go watch the fireworks from the pool in Englewood.
And on the way over many people were already shooting them off which didn’t exactly appeal to Hank.
Once we got to the pool both dogs were fine and we were able to see all of the fireworks from a safe and much quieter distance.
I celebrated the 4th with 4 glasses of wine which is exactly 3 more glasses than I normally would drink.
Needless to say, I did not run on Sunday. Instead we went boating and fishing.
We got back to the house around 2pm and we all took super long naps. Later in the day I was able to catch up on some local news and such, and relax.
One of the articles I read was one I wanted to share with you. Y’all know I believe that slower runs are incredibly beneficial if you want to get faster and build endurance. This article talks about why slower cardio is good for your body.
Also from this weekend here’s another example of why you shouldn’t celebrate a win before you actually win.
Later on Sunday night MacGyver and I tried to watch a few movies. Unfortunately Netflix was pixellated and no matter what we did we couldn’t fix it. I sure wish we would have realized it before we spent 4 hours watching the same damn movie.
And in appliance news, my coffee pot in the Venice house goes rogue on me on the reg. It randomly changes the time and when I pre-set it to go off in the morning, it goes off much earlier than I set it for. This would be the reason I got up at 4:45am this morning…..I should get a new one but I live for the excitement.
Time to go for a run.
Now, tell me what you did this weekend.
